The breakfast was above average. I stayed 2 nights and the menu was slightly different each morning. There's eggs, Turkey sausage, pork sausage, and omelets....

Our room was clean & roomy. We had GREAT customer service from Mariana (at the front desk) and Nancy (from the breakfast bar). They have the largest variety of breakfast foods offered of any hotel we have visited. We really enjoyed our stay!

Love that hot breakfast was included. Raul in the front desk was a doll. He was always friendly and had great recommendations of places to visit...

We had to make a unplanned trip to San Antoni on family business. The Holiday Inn Express was close to where we were going and right off I-35. We got a King Suite room.

I would give this a 4.5 Lovely holiday inn for the price! Wow! Very friendly / helpful staff, clean, COMFY clean beds and a nice breakfast selection. Probably better for families?

Great location if you're going to sea world and downtown. Not too far from either. Good, hot breakfast that includes bacon!! Friendly staff, indoor pool. Good place to stay at around 100 bucks. Free cookies at the front desk, and they even gave us a late check out! Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was no mini fridge...
